Civias Acanteo Grillo

More adventures with Sicilian wines! This white, made from the Grillo grape, was amazing.

It was pale yellow, and the nose was bursting with melon and lemon peel scents, along with a slight chalky backbone.

The taste bore out the scents, with more melons (it reminded me a little bit of Midori, though not as tart or sweet), with zippy acidity that tickled my tongue and enough minerality to smooth out the rough edges.

Utterly drinkable, utterly delicious. And less than $15 a bottle, too!
